Emmaline Hicks

A proud native of Floyd, VA, Emmaline Hicks, 23, grew up singing in local churches, and has been singing and songwriting for as long as she can remember. “I grew up singing in church and still do. Writing songs is how I process life and how I can share my feelings with those around me. The thing I love most about music is how it connects everyone — how two people could be total opposites but sharing a love of the same band or genre can form an instant sense of camaraderie. It’s like magic.” We welcome Emmaline Hicks to the mountain for the first time for FloydFest 22~Heartbeat.
